Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham has responded to criticism from Bill Nye "the Science Guy" over the recently opened Ark Encounter in Kentucky, by claiming that Nye is seeking to "brainwash" children and convince them that they're "just animals."
Nye had argued in an interview with NBC News that not only was the life-sized Noah's Ark theme park "disturbing," but on the Ark's third deck, every single one of the science exhibits was supposedly "absolutely wrong."
